that is impacting american families, hard-working taxpayers all across this country. when president obama was in the senate, when he was a u.s. senator, he voted against raising the debt ceiling. and he said it was a lack of leadership that had brought us to this point. and so i would, at the beginning of this congress, hope that the president would make this a new start, where we could look at this, and that we'll actually get a budget in place. the senate hasn't passed a budget now for four years. the president, unfortunately, yesterday, said that he's going to delay his budget. even though the law says that he's supposed to submit the budget by february 4th. that is concerning to me. that we are on auto pilot. that the federal government continues to grow, continues to -- we're continuing to spend more money, and we need the president to join in this effort to get our fiscal house in order. >> you're quoted in telling politico that a government shutdown seems surely possible. you said in part that i think it's possible that we would shut down the government to make sure president obama
to war with that country. since the first option is extremely unlikely and the second extremely unattractive, the obama administration needs to see if there is a path through which it can pressure iran to make a deal. in a thoughtful essay in the current issue of "foreign affairs" the columbia scholar jurvis points out that this kind of coercive diplomacy, at least from washington, has rarely worked. he points out in panama, 1989, iraq, 1990, serbia, 1998, afghanistan, 2001 and iraq, 2003, washington tried sanctions pressure and the threat of force to get leaders to change course, it didn't work. and washington had to make good on its threat to go to war. with north korea, coercive diplomacy also failed, but in this case, washington decided against military action choosing, instead, to contain the regime. making coercive diplomacy requires a mix of threats and promises. with regard to iran, the administration has made the threats plenty of times. with clarity and credibility. but while the sticks have been handled shrewdly, the carrots have not. the united states is unable to de
is barack obama, and the presidency, which is the highest ranking officer of our country. and i think that is what they don't realize is they're disparaging the office that basically leads not only the country but the free world, and when we start talking about how are they going to negotiate comprehensive immigration reform, they're going to send vice president biden. that's great, but the republicans need to understand that in order for them to pass comprehensive immigration reform, they're going to need to have a coalition of republicans and diversity within the democratic party on both sides. i think colin powell said it best. colin powell, a republican that has served on several administrations, he's tried to shepherd the republican party into a new era, and it's not a matter of just touting one person of color every so often for the republican party. american voters understand when someone is not being authentic and i think not only do they have a diversity problem, they have an authenticity problem. >> professor, to her point, colin powell took issue with some of the racially c
late last year, mr. obama says he will retaliate. >> the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. >> reporter: countries that lived through the arab spring two years ago are morphing into a zone of instability. barack obama put his administration on the line for egypt's president mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood. but egypt's economy is on the ropes. across the region, political storm clouds ar gathering as iran, israel and eight arab countries hold crucial elections this year. >> in every one of them, a new form of right, far, far right is emerging as to change the balance of power. >> reporter: in his first term, barack obama said he was making the middle east peace process a priority, but middle east expert aaron david miller says don't get your hopes up for this term. >> the fact is if you -- if the administration tried to put mahmoud abbas and benjamin netanyahu down together, right now, or in february, at the negotiating table, the gaps between them are so large that they simply cannot be bridged and the u.s., yet again,
saying we are listening to your concerns, ceos of the country -- >> but never meant it. he never really meant it. obama. i'm directly going at the president -- >> he doesn't have an interest in deregulation. he snipped a couple of regulations and then added hurnds, literally hundreds of economically significant regulations during his term, and that's just only going to increase going forward. there is no strategy going forward to any kind of corporate tax reform. he talks about it but it's not going anywhere. there's no -- >> how can you -- what's your defense on this? >> i'm at a loss for words. >> yes. i would imagine so. >> i don't know, about the jobs council i don't think it's a huge deal that it hasn't met because they've already made recommendations. and the question is when are those recommendations ever going to see the light of day in congress. he has an american jobs act he put out. it hasn't gone anywhere in the republican house. i think those are some of the proposals that came out of the jobs council. but in terms of what mark said i think he's exactly right. the president
. frankly, president obama needs to start rolling up his sleeves and focusing on both instead of sitting over in the white house and kind of throwing out all the threats to everybody across the country and running around campaigning as if he's still running for office. you know, the election is over. president obama actually has to start governing and addressing the problems and frankly the spending problem is one of the biggest reasons right now why we're in this dilemma. >> you're still going full bore on the spending sequester? full bore, spending sequester? >> we need to address the spending problem in washington from many different fronts. that's one of those fronts. there are a lot of others. and again, president obama refuses to talk about any of them. he doesn't think we have a spending problem. well, then why is our nation hitting the credit card limit again? because the government is spending too much. we have to solve that problem. >> many thanks. appreciate it, sir. >> great being with you. >>> let's bring in our panel to talk about this. we have molly ball with the atlantic.
that was gripping the country. >>> the man practiced hail to the chief today for president obama's inauguration a week from tomorrow. >> there's the president now -- >> it was rehearsal with hundreds of band members, military personnel, media and law enforcement taking part. they used stand ins for the president and first lady. the military is getting ready to make sure everyone stays safe. >> on the morning of the inauguration the biggest move you'll see is in the pentagon south parking lot, where they will screen all of the buses and parade participants. >> washington, d.c., expecting more than 500,000 people to attend the inauguration. cnn is your home for complete coverage of the inauguration, starts next sunday morning. and lead up to the official swearing in of the president for his second term on monday all the way through the official inaugural balls monday night. >>> now to the big stories in the week ahead. from the white house to wall street. we begin with the president's plans for the week. >> i'm brianna keeler at the white house. president obama will participate in a ceremony at t

there. >>> well, president obama has made no secret. he wants to do sothing about gun violence, and he stood before the country yesterday with a concrete set of proposals. some of them executive actions, some of them some work that congress is going to have to do, but many of the things he talked about still leave a lot of questions unanswered, and my next guest has a lot of those answers, and is still trying to work through some as well. he's new york's police commissioner ray kelly. thanks very much for coming in. i know you were in d.c. for the event yesterday, and i'm sure you're still getting your head around a lot of what's been, it seems, put together in warp speed time. but just from what you do know, your reaction to the president's actions? >> my reactions, certainly positive. i think it's something that has been overdue. certainly mayor bloomberg has led the charge, so to speak, in this area, and the president, i think, in essence supported everything that the mayor has put forward. >> one of the big criticisms is that while assault-styled weapons sound terribly menacing and
. and the president is going to have two very big opportunities to sell the country on his proposals about gun violence. first the inaugural address on monday and the state of the union address. as we mentioned, he is turning obama for america into this organization for action and vice president joe biden made this promise to you and your colleagues at the mayor's conference yesterday. i want to show everybody. take a listen. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress. we're going to take it beyond that. we're going to take it to the american people. we're going to go around the country, making our case, and we're going to let their voices -- the voices of the american people be heard. >> sir, what do you think this organization is actually going to be able to accomplish? do you think it can match what the obama reelection campaign was able to do? >> yes, i do. and i'll tell you why, this really isn't about the power of the presidency versus the power of the nra. it's about the power of the people. and as you've seen in poll after poll since newtown, there's about a 16-point in
angry at someone that is so well respected in the country and is trying to shepherd your party into a new era. president obama won with a new majority. he won among women, asians, blacks, latinos, young people. what colin powell is trying to shepherd the republican party and say you can't dress it up. you can't put four or five people in front of the camera and call yourself diverse. not only does the republican party have a problem with diversity, they also have an authenticity problem. people would scratch their head and say are you being sincere? and colin powell is trying to lead that way. and he's not the only one within the republican party. look at jeb bush doing the same thing safing you need to change. and there's plenty of women that are elected to congress right now that are basically republican women trying to do the same thing. you have to change and modernize with the reflection of the american public. >> richard, i looked all day for a leading moderate republican to come out and defend general powell. why are they so quiet? >> i think there's a lot of fear in the
. president obama lays down his marker on the next fiscal fight fight facing congress in the country. will republicans fight back saying nothing will happen without more spending cuts? >>> state of play. democratic governors are moving fast to change gun laws in their states, will support on the state level help or hurt the white house push here in washington? promises promises. today a deep dive into a president obama pitched as candidate obama and what he did from that first inaugural speech to his announcement speech and, of course, when he accepted that nomination. we are looking back at all of it. it is very interesting and you should take look. good morning from washington. tuesday, january 15, 2013. this is the -- little bit late, "daly run-down." i'm chuck todd. first reads of the morning. with washington once again careening towards a fiscal crisis, this one now about debt and spending. the president used his last news conference of his first term to make it clear he intends to stand firm and refuse to negotiate over the debt limit. >> republicans in congress have would choi
what's happened lately to our country. >>> up next, what president obama's strategic vision on foreign policy is as he enters his second term. nbc news foreign correspondent ayman mohyeldin joins us next on "morning joe." [ female announcer ] going to sleep may be easy, but when you wake up in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after takin
expect from barack obama? what message do you think he should be trying to project? >> i think he wants to renew hope in this country and ratify the renewal of hope that he believes came with the election. i think it will be a speech of inspiration. it will not be a detailed legislative agenda. i think it can be one of those speeches. he has this capability that can inspire people. from him, actually, in the 2008 campaign especially, and i think we may see that again on inaugural day. >> would this be the time to take off the debt ceiling and lay out some of his hard lines, or wait for the state of the union for that? >> i think he can lay out his principles. i don't think he should turn this into a partisan speech. he helps himself when he holds the high ground. can i see him saying something like, look, we disagree on a lot of issues, but we're opponents, not enemies. let's find a way to work together for the good of the country. here's what i think we should do. i mean, sounding that kind of grace note i think is important in an inaugural address. >> and when you look back at the ina
that this speech is going to sort of deal with some of the broader themes that president obama talked about on the campaign trail. he's going to talk about the need for the country to come together. we'll probably reiterate his call to sort of get rid of sort of partisan divides that have been sort of creating so much trouble here in washington. so that will be a big theme. and he might talk about some of his larger policy initiatives like immigration reform and gun control reform, but he's not going to get into a whole lot of specifics. i think you're absolutely right. he's going to kind of touch on the broader themes of all those points. >> i can't wait to see what dress the first lady will be wearing on monday night. kristin welker, thank you so much. we'll see you monday. >> reporter: thanks. i look forward to that, too. thanks, karen. >> we'll be right back. need for protein increases, yet many of us don't meet our daily protein needs? that's why there's boost® high protein nutritional drink. each delicious serving provides fifteen grams of protein to help maintain muscle and help mee

president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to make the decision on what they want, but we should be there to help them. ifwe can't protect our children from school or someone going to the movies, i think that has hit the heart of everybody in this countr
of power this time from obama to obama, but what it shows is that it's the president taking the oath of office to lead an entire nation, to heal some of the divisions of the election, to bring the country together and lead into a second term. from the ceremonial aspect, the pomp and circumstance is much, much different than four years ago when you had hope, change, 1.8 million people on the mall. the first african-american president ever elected. >> the crowd very different. >> the biggest crowd ever in washington ever on the mall including mlk's speech i have a dream. this is a moment we're watching, but that was a transitional moment in american history. >> tell us about as someone who watches these inaugurations, takes a look at history overall, what will you be watching for tomorrow in both the ceremony and the address that the president is going to give? >> well, jenna, i'll be looking for what his maybe four policy priorities that hee before he becomes a lame duck. we're two years out from 2014, only four years from 2016. really, he's got a hundred days, really maybe a year to
exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel
republican opponent in the primary a gun grabber. everybody's a gun grabber. president obama did introduce yesterday a very broad package of reforms to try to deal with gun violence in this country. expanded access to mental health treatment, improvements in the background checks system, resources for schools to have more armed guards on site if they want them. and yes, a renewal of the old assault weapons ban that we had for ten years before it expired in 2004. since president obama introduced those measures all of the discussion in washington has been about the viability of what he is proposing, right? renewing the assault weapons ban, that's not viable, that'll never pass. that is the chorus from washington. the nra of course says that nothing will pass. old steve stockman says i don't care if anything passes, let's impeach him anyway, gun grab, gun grab. but because of what is going on in washington right now, because that is the discussion, we are also -- we're not just getting the sort of predictable loudness from predictable washington loud voices. we are also getting something real
the current value at $294 million, that's a 7% increase since the obamas moved in. meantime, two high profile obama supporters will miss the inauguration on monday. both oprah and george clooney will be out of the country according to their reps. however, no shortage of celebs monday. beyonce singing "the national anthem." katy perry, steve ri wonder are just a few of the big names to be there. nbc will have coverage beginning at 5:30 a.m. with a special edition of "morning joe" and i will be live along the parade route for msnbc and nbc. those are the things we thought you should know. >>> and time now for the "gut check." as president obama heads in to the second term, our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll found 43% of americans are optimistic about the next four years. 22% have mixed feelings. what's your gut tell you? how much hope and optimism do you have about the next four years? cast that vote and take a look at what you're saying about yesterday's "gus check." do you believe manti te'o's story he was the victim of a cruel hoax about a dead girlfriend that never existed? 16% say
. that with obama care is going to be possible. now every health insurance plan in the country will require addiction and mental health treatment as part of the every insurance package. so now when you go in for your checkup, with your going to get your checkup from the neck up, too. you'll be tested whether you have depression, anxiety or any kind of dependency issue. and that's good for all of us. because you can't treat diabetes or asthma or cardiovascular disease if you're not addressing the drinking or depression or anxiety. the earlier we start doing this, the better it is going to be for all of us. chris's book does a lot of that educating. >> most of these issues develop in adolescence and intervention at that point is the surest way of changing trajectory. >> very interesting. let me say, i have so many questions to ask you. we, of course, know you as a former congressman. >> yes. >> very public battles play out on the front pages. i want to spend a little bit of time on this, but for those watching, they're kennedy cousins, what do they have to worry about? you sit here today diff
it isn't about bashing the northeast. it is about saving the country. >> we have to get this under control. most conservatives believe we have to come to a point where we stand and fight. i hope this is the time. >> after president obama said it would be irresponsible and absurd for republicans to insist on spending cuts in order to raise the debt ceiling and key senate republican says mr. obama doesn't get it. >> you have a kid that keeps a credit card loaded and a person that would tear up the credit card but you look at the credit. republicans are willing to pay for past bill but this is about the future bill. the president misses the point here. >> reporter: today, house democratic whip steny hoyer said new revenue must accompany spending cuts. for day, the final passage is expected in the house in the next hour or so. bret? >> bret: mike, we will follow that on fox. thank you. ominous note now from one of the world's top credit agencies. fitch rating says the u.s. could lose the top credit rating if there is a delay in raising the debt limit. we'll find out with the senior pol
dealers to conduct background checks. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americanses who need it. i think these are perfectly reasonable steps to help this country begin to stem the tide of gun violence. there's been a petition on the white house website to have me deported on my views. here's what happened with one of the men behind the petition, alex jones. welcome to you. >> piers, thanks for having me. >> why do you want to deport me? >> we did it to bring recognition to the fact that we have all these foreigners. he's the only guy that had the guns. so we did it to point out this is global system and the mega banks that control the panic and brag they've taken over in bloomberg, reuters, you name it, brag they're going to get our guns as well. when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, predator drones, armed in u.s. skies, being used to arrest people in north dakota. the second amendment isn't there for duck hunting. it's there to protect us from t
, president obama plans to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after newtown urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military-style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people. >> so let's look at all of those items up there. richard wolffe, every one of them has overwhelming support of the american people. universal background checks. 85% of americans support that. restoring a ban on milita military-style assault weapons. that's a 60/40 proposition now. limiting magazines to ten rounds. almost 7 in 10 americans support that. additional tools for law enforcement. you know that's got to be an 80/20, 90/10 issue. the same with improving mental health services. i bring these numbers up only to say, once again, that my r

. they are urging retailers to take the weapons off the shelves. >> i'm urging our country's major gun retailers like walmart and sports authority to suspend sails of modern assault style weapons until congress is able to fully consider and vote on legislation to curb gun violence. >> president obama made clear he's ready for a fight over the response to gun violence. >>> a somber day for those marking the one year anniversary for the costa concordia tragedy. the crew that died were remembered during a mass today. the ship is still partially submerged in the harbor there. the captain could still face charges there. >>> a ban on american adoptions will not go into effect until next year according to a russian news agency. hundreds of russians protests the ban in moscow believing the government passed it as backlash for a u.s. law that targets human rights violations in russia. the decision to delay the ban means 46 adoptions now in the process should go through. >>> the hobby lobby chain may have found a temporary loophole to dodge millions in fines for not complying to the health care law. they

legislation that will make this country safer? >> well, clearly what happened with sandy and frankly what happened with every sort of other sort of flash point over the last two years is that president obama engaged public opinion. he did it with student loans, he did it with hurricane sandy, he did it with the fiscal cliff. they obviously originated measures in the senate. because the house right now because of that dysfunctional caucus, the republican caucus is incapable of originating anything that has a prayer of becoming law. and that we used that process to basically shake those votes loose. of those individuals who again, i have talked to numbers of republicans privately in the wake of newtown who care about this. you know, there really are people on the other side of my aisle who i think we can work with this on this. and again, common sense measures about making existing laws work which is essentially what the president did today with his executive orders. and looking at orders that those in my district says they can support. limiting the size of clips, strengthening the backgrou

years ago, i will say in the air and certainly in temperatures of temperature, but certainly the obama administration that hopes maybe coming out of some of the celebration still in the air here they'll start or try to bring the country together. you mentioned that vice-president biden will be going first, in just a few moments, justice sonia sotomayor will swear him in and he and the president will be at arlington national cemetery laying a wreath at the tomb of unknown and in the blue room hine me on the aren't side because the constitution says he needs to be sworn in on january 20th and the ceremonial stuff will happen on the capitol west front tomorrow. some of the celebration started yesterday, a children's inaugural ball the first lady went to along with dr. jill biden and trying to get folks involved this and also the president and first lady participating in a day of service, they participated in a project here, service project here in washington d.c. and they had a lot of cabinet members, the vice-president and others doing that as well and when the president had a chance to

of people from other parts of the country and not let this stuff come up for a vote? >> what do you think the white house's assessment is of that what you just laid out? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to propose, by the way, is to make it a lot easier to collect data on gun violence, on people who die in violence. the nra has blocked even the collection of data. so we can't know what is going on. so we can't come up with the right solutions. i hope that is part
obama after the shooting. the internet conspiracy theorists say that is not emilie's sister at all, it is emilie herself. in a statement earlier today emilie's father robbie told us, "as a country we cannot let us become derailed by the preposterous claims that are being made by a tiny number of people. this time is sacred for my family and for every family affected by this horrific event. we cannot let these false claims distract us from the things that matter most to all of us." now, it's one thing for ill-informed people to take to the internet to voice their parano paranoia. there are all these kinds of people. but it's another for an associate professor at a university to do it. again, we were hoping to talk to the professor tonight. we asked him again yesterday if he'd come on tonight. today he called us back and said he couldn't come on because he teaches a class on tuesday nights. we offered to send a satellite truck to him or to pretape the interview. he he declined. alex sides wald is a political report reporter for salon.com. he's been out in front on the reporting on th
. today, president obama unveils his plan to curb gun violence in america. the issue debated all across the country, including last night on a special edition of "piers morgan tonight." take a look. >> what are you saying to me, would you need an iar-15 to protect yourself from your own government. >> let's look at that. 19 orders coming down. we have had natural disasters where police have cleared out of the cities, and people who had weapons were safe. we don't know what will happen. tonight, we might have a bright, sunny america. who is to say what will happen in the future. >> some people make your head hurt when they speak. wow. she doesn't know what executive order is. we'll speak with tammy duckworth. a democrat in illinois. just voted into congress. thank you for joining us. this debate, very heated and very angry. that woman just talking from piers morgan's show last night. you hear that not infrequently. i have second amendment rights, and the government might come to get me, some of the is beginning to sound a little nutty to me. how do you be the voice of calm, as you want t
. but it is -- it's stunning. you look at what's happening in the country. >> should kids be in a position to be mocked, maria? >> certainly i agree that limbaugh is limbaugh and no matter what president obama does, he's going to be against it. let's put that out front. i think we need to be very careful about using kids in politics and to seemingly advance a political agenda like rush limbaugh said. but let's also keep in mind that this event that happened in newtown happened to children. it's a very defining event in the collective soul and consciousness, not just of adults but of our children, carol. what parent in this country did not have to sit down with their children and i think will agrees with me on this point, to explain to them what happened. he's got kids. i've got kids. everybody with kids had to explain to them what happened. if my children then said to me, well, i would like to write president obama, whoever the president might be at the time, to tell them what i think and what i'm feeling, i would be absolutely okay with that. if the parents are okay with having their chil
cling to black helicopters and guns. that's a rural part of this country. i don't like it. i disagree with it, but the bottom line is the south, which by the way if you take a look at virginia and north carolina h obama won virginia twice, won north carolina the first time, almost won it this time. south carolina, what did mitt romney win it with? 53%. georgia, 52%. the south is trending purple. it's going purple. this is not a southern problem. it's a rural american problem. that's what's going on. >> we're to our other southerner now. karen, there may be people around the country who are upset over what the president has done to stop gun violence, but resistance seems especially strong in the south. for example, in mississippi a state where white voters gave the president just 10% of their support, governor phil bryant will draft legislation to say firearms manufactured in mississippi would not be subject to federal regulations. is this something he can actually do? >> well, i have a slightly different take on this as well. i suppose this governor thinks he can try to do that, but i
posted on the white house youtube channel. >> dear president obama, i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. >> and i'm ready to ask you to start gun laws. i am very sad about the children who lost their lives in connecticut, so i thought i would write to you to stop gun violence. >> mr. president, can we do something which will stop all of these terrible problems? after watching the news all day on friday, one question pops in my head and that question is, can we stop using guns? >> the obama administration has come under fire for incorporating the children into that news conference. some conservatives say the children are being used as props. >>> and this weekend scores of children, their parents, and others will descend on washington ahead of president obama's inauguration. the chairs are being placed. dress rehearsals are taking place, but if you're headed to d.c., you better bundle up because the forecast calls for flurries on inauguration day. national guardsmen from more than 25 states maki
. it is their country. it also, of course, would come at the orders of president obama. what we do know is the u.s. military already has one unit on very short in the. this is the commanders and extremists force. it's at an undisclosed location, special forces that can move within four hours of getting that presidential order, specializing in hostage rescue and terrorism operations. there are a number of other units in the region. let's walk through some of them, wolf. there are about 150 marines in sigonella, italy, not very far away. they are trained for crisis intervention. there are also two teams of marines in rota, spain, also trained for anti-terrorism operations and back in the united states, the legendary and often called upon s.e.a.l. team 6, based on the east coast of the united states, they are always on the short stream. that four-hour typical notice, they could be wheels up if the order comes. but, wolf, you are right. what the military will be doing is putting some pieces into place so they are ready. so if the president says we are going to do this, they will be ready to go, wolf
it was taking place. >> reporter: officials from the u.s. and other countries say they had no heads-up on the operation, were provided contradictory information on the raid and on the status of their citizens. the white house says president obama is receiving regular updates on the raid, that the administration is in constant contact with the government of algeria and has been clear that our first priority is the safety and security of the hostages. the u.s. defense secretary put the terrorists on notice. >> they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. >> reporter: but the demands of the group led by mokhtar belmokhtar are growing. release of two high-profile figures held in the u.s., the so-called blind sheikh who's serving a life sentence planning terror attacks in the u.s., and a pakistani neuroscientist convicted of trying to kill americans in afghanistan. the obama administration is ruling out any deal. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> reporter: and one american who was at that site when it was attacked by
